Always worth a visit!

Freshest of ingredients prepared with flair are the norm. We've eaten dinner here 4-5 times (and I've also eaten lunch here a few times) and enjoyed every meal. My husband's only complaint (sometimes) is the portion size.

We had a wonderful dinner. Interesting lobster out of the shell. Also soft shell crab was to die for!!! There is also bread and we had an appetizer of conch.

We went for my boyfriend's birthday and enjoyed every bite. He doesn't normally have an open pallet but we both tried something new and it was delicious. The presentation was like something from a postcard. The service was also great. Definitely going back.

I wasn't overwhelmed. The service was excellent, the ambience was typical of small foodie joints (candles, small tables close together), and the menu had good variety. But other than the phenomenal (worth the trip) spicy shrimp appetizer, food was just fair. Crab cakes were good quality crab, but not very flavorful. Not objectionable at all...but nothing that made me sigh... More

My fiance and I had dinner at Catch on our engagement day. I was so happy I showed my ring to the server. Not only he shared our happiness but he made sure we had an unforgettable experience by staying attentive, respectful and sweet. It was a very busy night and we finished our dinner slightly later than the closing... More

Great food. I got the ribs and shrimp (which they grilled for me instead of fried, at my request) and my husband had shrimp and grits. Good-sized portions. My husband finished his, but was full, and I didn't eat all of mine. Friendly staff. Not in a prominent location, but the food is great! Planning to return while we are... More

Went here on a date night with my girlfriend (you need a reservation) based on recommendations from friends. I was not disappointed. Started off with a great local beer and craft cocktail, both came from recommendations from our server. I had the flax crusted grouper special, I have had grouper prepared many ways, never as good as this. I was... More

I was told by a local that this was the best seafood in the area. Reservations are VERY necessary. This is a tiny place away from downtown. Interesting and inventive menu. I had a drink made with moonshine and fruit juice and spouse had a draft. He had steak and I had grilled grouper with a tasty sauce. I had... More
